A Snake-boat in action! (2 of 5)

The Nehru Trophy Boat race is a popular water sport in the Punnamada lake, Alappuzha, Kerala.
Known as the Snake Boat Race, the event involves a terrific action in the starting point and the race towards the finishing point!

A snake boat usually is a very long wooden boat made specially to balance with a team of more than
100 Oarsmen in action!
